Mark Klett, Photography, and the Reinvention of Landscape

Author: William L. Fox

Publisher: UNM Press

ISBN: 9780826322197

Category: Photography

Page: 309

View: 5491

Mark Klett has been photographing the American West for nearly twenty-five years. He directed the Rephotographic Survey Project in the late 1970s, which located and rephotographed the sites of images made by William Henry Jackson, Timothy O'Sullivan, and other photographers surveying the West in the late nineteenth century. Klett has also published several books of his own work. Using his travels in the Nevada desert with Mark Klett and his current rephotographic team as the starting point, William Fox offers here an examination of the history of photography in the American West and of Klett's role in documenting the landscape. Like the story of photography itself, this is a multilayered narrative. Part historical overview, part travel journal, part biographical study of Klett,View Finderexplores the evolution of our view of the land from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day. Fox looks at the legacy left by the likes of Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, and Robert Adams. And in focusing on the work of Mark Klett in the last quarter century, William Fox reflects upon the meaning of the landscape at the beginning of the millennium. Because Klett's work has been so closely connected to the great photographic surveys of the 1870s, and because he has been so influential to a new generation of photographers, his is the ideal viewpoint from which to measure our changing approach to the American space.

The Art, Science, and Craft of Great Landscape Photography teaches photographers how to convert their visual peak experiences-moments of extraordinary natural beauty that evoke a sense of wonder and awe-into stunning images that elicit the same awestruck emotion in their viewers. Randall is an experienced wilderness photographer, and whether you want to venture into the mountains for once-in-a-lifetime shots of raw nature, or simply hone your landscape photography skills from the safety of your back deck, Randall explains the art, science and craft of creating astounding images.Randall begins by focusing on the art of landscape photography. He describes his three-step process for composing a photograph and shows how good composition is an organic process that begins with rules but ultimately transcends them. Randall then explores the science behind successful landscape photographs, which requires understanding key concepts from geography, optics, vision, and psychology. These concepts include: Understanding how the position of the sun at sunrise and sunset varies throughout the year, which will help you plan when and where to shoot. Understanding optics to predict where rainbows will appear, how polarizers will interact with reflections, and where to find spectacular light. Understanding how to use topographic maps and computerized mapping tools to help you find the most promising shooting locations in the wilderness. Understanding how our visual system analyzes images and the psychology of how we view art. These insights will help you produce successful photographs. Exposure is a central aspect of the craft of landscape photography, and Randall tackles the challenges of this topic from every angle-from tips on calculating exposures in the field, to achieving correct exposure in high-contrast lighting situations, to the best digital darkroom techniques.Great landscape photography can be mastered with practice and by applying the techniques taught in this book. The Art, Science, and Craft of Great Landscape Photography is intended for those who already understand the basics of photography and who are ready to master the finer nuances of creating magnificent landscape photographs.

Discover The Secrets to Mastering Landscape Photography At Night! Night photography and astrophotography can be two of the most frustrating sub-genres of landscape. A lot of the reason for this is because: 1. It really is a hard subject to master due to the lack of light. 2. People don’t understand how to go about mastering it. It’s very technical, math based, and has a lot of steps. While this can put a lot of people off, I’m here to break it down for you. Planning is absolutely key, and I’ll walk you through every step you need to make your shoot successful. Here Is A Preview Of What You'll Learn Inside... Tips and Tricks for Photographing in Low Light: Before diving right into night photography, I think it’s best to get your feet wet with a little introduction into the world of low light photography. If you can master this, night photography is the next logical step. The tips include information on the importance of selecting ISO and using a tripod to reduce shake. These things carry over into night photography. Astrophotography and Night Photography: I explain the difference; inclusion of landscape along with the sky or without. How Dark Does it Need to Be?: This chapter discusses how to figure out the light pollution in your area, and a few tips on how to combat it and use it to your advantage if need be. The Gear: This comprehensive list breaks down the essential gear you need to make it work. Planning Your Shoot and Composition: Talks about all the steps you need to take to make your shoot successful. Have a list of all the equipment you need and make sure to pack it all (and extra) at least the night before. Get to know your equipment and make sure it’s all set where it should be in the daylight, before you get to your location. This chapter also discusses the way in which composition differs when you work at night. Getting Star Trails: How to make beautiful star trails in your image Getting Point Stars: Provides opposite techniques to the previous tip, including how to determine exposure time for this style. Editing: Night photography has its own kind of retouching that you have to do to get the perfect image, and I break down all the steps and how to make them work for you.

No photographer was more deeply engaged with the transformative interaction of light and landscape than Galen Rowell. The preeminent outdoor photographer of his time, he spent his career chasing magic light in the high places of the planet. Into this landmark volume he poured all his insights gleaned from those adventures, assembling galleries of his most memorable images to illustrate them. The photographs are arranged in eight exhibits according to the many qualities of light found in mountain environments. Rowell also shares the stories that went into their creation—what he was after and how he achieved it, from preparation and "previsualizing" to the physical challenges of being in the right place at exactly the right time. In addition to explaining how he worked with optical phenomena and natural light, the book traces his development as a photographer—in terms of both philosophy and technique—and recounts his adventures in some of the most remote, dangerous, and beautiful places on Earth. A generation of photographers has learned from the experience, craft, and vision that Rowell passed on in this book, as will future generations. And all who respond to dynamic outdoor imagery will continue to marvel at his achievements. The acclaimed landscape photographer David Muench contributes an illuminating foreword to this new edition.

The latest digital cameras have made it easy to create images of the landscape at night that film and early digital photographers could only dream of. Equipped with off-the-shelf cameras, more and more photographers are venturing into the night, far beyond the comforting glow of city lights, and returning with spectacular images of places both familiar and unknown that are unlike anything seen before.
